Marzipan is a sweet combination of sugar and almond meal. It is popular in baking for its pliable texture that makes it easy to mold into all kind of shapes. Celebrate by trying your hand at making some marzipan and seeing what you can make with it! Creating animals out of marzipan is a New Years tradition in some places, so celebrating this sweet treat so close to New Years is a great time!
Ever seen cute animal or fruit decor on top of a cake? There’s a good chance it was made out of marzipan. Marzipan is a sweet, fondant-like dough made from almond paste, sugar, and egg whites. Sometimes marzipan is confused with almond paste, but it actually has less almonds and more sugar.
